About Bangalore University
Bangalore University, situated in Bangalore suitably hailed as the “I.T. Capital of India”, was set up in July 1964. It is an open university in Bangalore and is one among the oldest universities in India, fundamentally to incorporate establishments of higher learning situated in the metropolitan city of Bangalore and the regions of Bangalore, Kolar and Tumkur, which in the long run turned into a separate university. At first, the two renowned colleges of the city, the Central College (CC) and the University Visveshvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) framed the core of Bangalore Open University.
